It's happens. One moment you are in a packed metro and then the next moment you are here, at Château de Sceaux. Only in Paris can one be just a few stops away on public transportion and end up having a picnic in the plush green grass of a Château! The Château de Sceaux is a huge country house in Sceaux, a city only 6 miles from the center of Paris. Secret Travel Tip? In April, just for a week or so, the most incredible Cherry Blossoms bloom here! Pure gold my friends.
